  • Patent number: 9500629
    Abstract: Before executing a search for optimal correspondence relationship with a coarse-to-fine DP (dynamic programming) algorithm using time information of peaks appearing in a chromatogram as input data, a simplified linear correction is executed based on detection of start point and end point of the section in which the peaks are present. It is sufficient to correct only nonlinear time deviations in coarse-to-fine DP, and the space to be searched is thus narrowed down. In addition, in coarse stage DP, the number of pieces of data to be processed is reduced by selecting peaks based on peak intensity. Between coarse stage DP and fine stage DP, local inappropriate matching is eliminated by performing filtering processing in accordance with trend of time deviations over the entire chromatogram. The space to be searched in fine stage DP becomes narrow, which reduces the number of candidates to be searched and shortens the calculation time.

A video signal digitizer samples the input video signal at video sample points to generate a sequence of video pixel data, which is written into an acquisition framestore is organized into a video pixel array so as to represent a raster of the input video signal. A level analyzer reads the video pixel data row-by-row from segments of the video pixel array and increments video level data at addresses in cache memory in response to the serially-read video pixel data. This generates a sequence of video level data, which is written into an output framestore and which represents the level of the waveform of the input video signal. The segments of the video pixel array comprise at least one and less than all of the columns in the video pixel array.

  • Patent number: 8791949
    Abstract: Various embodiments are directed to methods for marketing investment services. The methods may comprise receiving at least one signal from a position detector indicating a position of a viewer relative to a display screen in a first axis and a perpendicular distance of the viewer from the display screen. The display screen may be aligned along the first axis and a second axis. The methods may also comprise displaying with the display screen a user interface. The user interface may comprise an age scale aligned with the first axis, an asset scale aligned with a second axis and a chart of assets versus age. Upon determining that the perpendicular distance of the viewer from the display screen is less than a predetermined value, the methods may comprise modifying the interface to display an element at a first position on the age scale corresponding to a position of the viewer relative to the display screen in the first axis.

  • Patent number: 8786597
    Abstract: Provenance techniques are disclosed for managing a history of a meeting. For example, a method for managing a history associated with a meeting comprises the following steps. Data associated with the meeting is collected. Provenance data is generated based on at least a portion of the collected data, wherein the provenance data is indicative of a lineage of one or more data items. A provenance graph is generated that defines a visual representation of the generated provenance data, wherein graph elements comprise one or more nodes and one or more edges between nodes, wherein nodes of the graph represent records associated with the collected data and edges of the graph represent relations between the records. One or more applications are associated with at least one graph element and are selectable to invoke functionality. The generated provenance graph is stored in a repository for use in analyzing the meeting.

  • Patent number: 8786602
    Abstract: A system and associated method for hierarchically decomposing a workflow graph G into a process structure tree PST. The workflow graph G is a two-terminal graph parsed into a tree T having triconnected components. Boundary pairs of all triconnected components in T are computed and fragments are discovered with boundary pairs. T is restructured into PST pursuant to categories of triconnected components in T. PST is deterministic and modular. PST represents a block-based process model that has fine blocks of execution units. PST is computed in time linear to the number of edges in G.

  • Patent number: 8788229
    Abstract: Provided are a digital oscilloscope and a method for controlling the same. The digital oscilloscope comprises a trace intensity synthesizer including a first intensity memory and a second intensity memory. The controlling procedure performed by the digital oscilloscope includes: a determining step for determining whether the time interval of a trigger signal is larger than a predetermined threshold, a first fluorescence processing step performed when the time interval of a trigger signal is equal to or less than the predetermined threshold, and a second fluorescence processing step performed when the time interval of a trigger signal is larger than the predetermined threshold. The digital oscilloscope can automatically select the dynamic fluorescence effect to pay attention to the long-term variation of a signal when the triggering rate is low, and the static fluorescence effect to pay attention to the rapid variation of a signal when the triggering rate is high.

  • Patent number: 8780115
    Abstract: An apparatus for marketing investment services comprising a display screen aligned along a vertical axis and a horizontal axis, a position detector, and a computer device. The computer device may receive at least one signal from the position detector indicating a position of a viewer relative to the display screen in the horizontal axis and a perpendicular distance of the viewer from the display screen; cause the display screen to display a user interface. The user interface may comprise an age scale aligned with the horizontal axis, an asset scale aligned with the vertical axis and a chart of assets versus age. Upon determining that the perpendicular distance of the viewer from the display screen is less than a predetermined value, the computer device modify the interface to display an element at a first position on the age scale corresponding to a position of the viewer relative to the display screen in the horizontal axis.

  • Patent number: 8767020
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus provide for a moderator that defines an editing space providing access to multiple applications. The moderator associates a first portion of the editing space with a first application and aligns the editing space over a work area of the first application. The moderator creates first content with the first application through the first portion of the editing space, such that the first content is bounded according to the dimension of the first portion of the editing space. The moderator further associates a second portion of the editing space with a second application. The moderator aligns the editing space over a work area of the second application. The moderator creates second content in the second application through the second portion of the editing space as the editing space displays the representation of the saved first content in the first portion of the editing space.
